Florida man faces life in prison for leaving bacon inside empty mosque

Less than two months after allegedly breaking into a Titusville, Fla., mosque and leaving raw bacon near its front door, 35-year-old Michael Wolfe is learning just how seriously authorities are taking the charges.

Currently behind bars with‚Äčout bail, the man is facing charges of armed burglary — since he was allegedly carrying a knife during the crime — and criminal mischief. Both charges are being enhanced according to hate-crime laws in the state, meaning Wolfe could spend the rest of his life in prison for leaving meat in an empty building without consent.

State Attorney Phil Archer defended the tough stance against the defendant.

“Our charging decisions confirm how seriously we take crimes of this nature,” he asserted. “When further investigation shows a crime is clearly hate motivated, it will not be tolerated.”
